Etta Mae & the Southern Fried Chicks
Come prepared for side-splitting comedy on Friday, March 28, with Etta May & the Southern Fried Chicks. What’s the best way to describe Etta May? “Minnie Pearl with a migraine.” To put it simply, when Etta May takes the stage, she is the reigning Queen of Southern Sass. She reflects, “You know you’re getting fat when you sit in the bathtub and the water in the toilet rises!” Etta May, will take you on a redneck ride through the Deep South.
Born and raised in Bald Knob, Arkansas, Etta May grew up alongside nine older brothers, who referred to their baby sister as “the human sacrifice.” In fact, Etta May’s parents – her father, a potpourri farmer, and her mother, bedridden by constant childbearing, – did not realize Etta May was a girl until she required a training bra.
Etta May won the prestigious American Comedy Awards: “Stand-Up Comic of the Year,” and has appeared on Oprah, Comic Strip Live, MTV, and as a guest commentator on “CBS Sunday Morning.”
Etta May headlines the most successful all-female “Southern Fried Chicks Tour,” selling out theaters throughout the country.
